The first planting of pumpkins is coming along well. They have had to overcome a few challenges-like getting run over by a quad runner!- but all in all doing fine.

This time of year is very exciting for pumpkin growers. After months of pouring over seed catalogs choosing which varieties to grow, it is time to actually get those seeds in the ground! Our first planting is up and running- only 110 days left 'til harvest!

This is the largest engraved pumpkin we grew last year (2006). Susan Branch had suggested putting this charming quote from Thoreau on a pumpkin but I didn't think it would fit. Well, it took a big pumpkin but it worked! The quote reads: " I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion".
